Memcached is a content caching platform, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years owing to its efficiency. It is used to cache requests and responses between a database and the app that is using it, which can enhance the performance of your website and decrease the produced server load tremendously. Every time a webpage on an app-driven site is visited, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be displayed, and then pulls it. With Memcached, these steps are skipped, since the platform has already cached all of the content that should be shown on a specific page. If any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the users will never end up seeing old content. The platform is an ideal option for every website that lures lots of viewers, since it will make it faster than the speed of sound and will improve the overall user experience.

Memcached in Website Hosting

When you host script-driven websites in a website hosting account with our company, you can add Memcached to your hosting plan with just a couple of mouse clicks from your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. The upgrade will be available immediately and, since the required extension is pre-installed on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform, you can begin using it straight away. To give you more versatility, we offer two different upgrades related to the number of instances (i.e. how many websites will use Memcached) and to the amount of system memory that the Memcached caching system will use. The latter comes in increments of 16 MB and you can add memory whenever you need. Naturally, the more memory the Memcached caching system is allowed to use, the more content it will cache, so in case you have a high-traffic website with a lot of content, you may need more memory in order to be able to take full advantage of the power that Memcached can offer you.

Memcached in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can get the Memcached memory caching system as an upgrade with each of our semi-dedicated servers and since it works with any script-driven web app, you can use it for each website that you host on our semi-dedicated servers, no matter what application you have used – WordPress, Joomla or Mambo, a custom-created application, etc. You can request the upgrade from the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel from which you administer your semi-dedicated account, and you can choose two separate things – the instances and the amount of memory that they will use. To put it in simple terms, these things specify how many Internet sites will use Memcached and the total amount of memory that the system will be able to use in order to cache your info. The two things are offered independently for more freedom and one instance does not come with a pre-defined amount of system memory. You can take advantage of the Memcached system with any sort of site and both you and your website visitors will quickly see the difference in the overall performance.

Memcached in VPS Servers

If you purchase a VPS server from our company, you will be able to use Memcached at no extra cost, as the data caching platform comes with all virtual machines ordered with the Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Even if you own large-scale sites, you can boost their overall performance with no effort and the reduced load on the VPS server will enable you to continue using your current package rather than migrating to a more powerful one. The amount of system memory that the Memcached caching platform can use to cache data depends on the package that you are using, but even with a low-end one, you’ll get at least several hundred MB, which is considerably more than what you’d get with a shared web hosting plan, so the website performance boost will be serious. You can use Memcached with any database-powered application, regardless of whether you’ve written it yourself or you are using a ready-made one such as OpenCart, Joomla or WordPress.

Memcached in Dedicated Servers

You can take advantage of the full potential of Memcached with each dedicated server that we offer in case you select Hepsia as your Control Panel. A section in it is dedicated to the memory caching system and you can start using Memcached for any site hosted on the server with just a few clicks. You can accelerate the overall performance of any site, irrespective of what script-driven app you’re using or how popular the website is, since the minimum amount of system memory that Memcached will be able to employ is 3 gigabytes and this amount increases seriously with the more powerful dedicated servers. Shortly after the caching system is enabled, it will begin caching content each time somebody opens your website, so, as soon as enough information has been stored, you’ll perceive the reduced load on your dedicated machine and the enhanced overall performance of your website. The Memcached system is used by numerous sites, including popular portals such as Reddit, Wikipedia and Zynga, which proves the efficiency of the Memcached caching system.
